The Devil's Three Golden Hair (German: Teufel mit den drei goldenen Haaren) is the fifth episode of season one of TV series SimsalaGrimm. It's based on the German fairy tale collected by Brothers Grimm - The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs.


Yoyo and Doc Croc fell on the rotating mill and got saved by the unknown boy. He asked them who are they and they started saying their iconic introductions. He said he is Casper, the miller's son. They heard some horses and wondered who was there. The king's messenger told Casper's father to make delicious dinner for the king. Then the king saw the crown birthmark on Casper's neck and got surprised. One mouse said to Doc Croc and Yoyo that one great-great-great-grandmother told them that boy will be born with a mark of a crown, and the other mouse continued that he will end up marrying the king's daughter.

The king commended Casper to feed the horses and whispered something to his servant. The king asked the miller if he could let his son go to his castle for a while. So, Casper left the house and Yoyo asked if they could go with him. He accepted. Then Yoyo and Doc Croc weren't sure if they were supposed to say something about Casper's oven. Then they found the letter from the kingdom in Casper's bag. The letter said how Casper did high treason and needed to be beheaded. Then Yoyo took the candle and repaired the seal.

Then Casper saw the woman on the horse that got crazy and she couldn't ride him so, she hit the tree and fell on the ground. Casper took her in his arms, but she saw the guards and ran away, but kissed him on cheek before she left. The guards saw Casper and asked him what was he doing there, he answered that he had a letter for the queen. The letter said that king requested that Casper get their daughter's hand for marriage. The queen said that the princess needed to agree. Now Casper refused marrying her daughter because he already liked somebody else. Then the princess showed up and Casper told her that he liked somebody else, but the princess was covered with the sheets and he couldn't see her face and when she showed it he was surprised because she was the girl. Then Casper accepted the marriage with the princess.

But then the king showed up while Casper and princess were in the yard and he took Casper to prison. But the princess didn't let the guards to catch Casper and king agreed on letting him on mercy under one little condition. He needed to get the gold, but not just any gold - three golden hairs from the head of the devil. They met the guy that told them how their city fountain stopped flowing and he asked if they could ask the devil what happened. Then they saw another guy who told them how the tree can't grow and that it is cursed. Casper said that they would find out for him. They went to river to hell and saw a Ferryman that asked them that whenever he tried to get off the boat he hit the invisible wall.

After they crossed the river, they showed up in the swamp and alive plants with torn tried to catch them. Then Doc Croc fell in the quagmire that was too big for him, but Casper saved him. Then they saw the gates to Hell. They saw the shadow of the devil and got scared. But maybe devil wasn't as bad as he looked. When his grandmother showed up and told him to pick the trash, he remained as the good guy. When devil left the grandmother hypnotized Casper and tied Yoyo and Doc Crop to the rope. She wanted to cook them. Yoyo and Doc Croc came with an idea to make the riddles for her instead of cooking them. Then she turned Casper to the little person as Yoyo and Doc Croc and turned them into a smaller ones, too and put them in her apron. She promised to make poison ivy pudding for her grandson if he takes the trash out and he did, so she made it for him and then he fell asleep.
